Didn't know there was a filter,i'll check it out.I'm leaning toward internal failure,I read elsewhere to jack the front end off ground and start truck,the wheels may turn on their own ! Thanx for insight.

Sounds to me like your saying wanders. Which indicates tow out.

If you run out of things to check....

I recall issues similar with old beaters, hoopties...

It could be tow in / out. It could be a bad tire belt.

I don't want to brag... but this is like the 5th "End of the World" I've survived.

Democrats: abolish ICE... free health care for illegals... make it easy for illegals who cross to stay... give illegals the right to vote... adamantly oppose building a secure border... create "sanctuary cities"... grant illegals in the country amnesty... welfare for illegals... tip off illegals about ICE raids.
And we're supposed to believe that Democrats aren't for open borders simply because they say so?

I drove truck today for the first time in a month and it drove perfect. With this covid virus going on I've been laying low,really low ! Did see a small puddle under the steering unit ,maybe 6 " in diameter. We'll see what happens,its one of those weird intermittent problems. Thanx, stay safe !

To much air pressure in front tires can also cause wandering. Get your truck weighed. Then set pressure using one of the tire manufactures pressure setting charts.
